PTA Education Summit – Engage, Envision, Evolve

Click here to Register Now!

Engagement in the second phase of the PTA Education Summit allows YOUR voice to be heard! All stakeholders, internal and external to the profession, are invited to register and engage in this virtual asynchronous event.

Phase 2 is presented in four interactive micro-learning modules. The first three include lessons that promote a shared understanding, so all participants have a common foundation from which to engage in the fourth module and collaborate with other stakeholders in a facilitated dialog around the key questions. Participants receive a certificate of completion at the conclusion of Module 4, and details will be provided for individuals to apply for CEUs in your jurisdiction. Engagement in Phase 2 is required to be considered for selection as a Phase 3 participant.

Phase 2 of the PTA Education Summit is available from November 1 to January 7, 2021, and the virtual format allows participants to engage from any location with internet access during the times that fit with personal schedules.  Participants should plan 8-10 hours to complete all four modules.  Registration is FREE to anyone with a stake in the future of PTA education, including PT & PTA clinicians, academic & clinical administrators, PTA students & faculty.

Additional summit information is available at PTA Education Summit 2021 - APTA Academy of Education,  or with an email to   


The Future of PTA Education and Physical Therapy Practice: PTA Education Summit

The APTA Academy of Education is conducting a Summit on the future of PTA education. The summit will address current challenges in PTA education, with the goal of formulating prioritized recommendations for future work that will prepare PTAs to better meet the demands of contemporary physical therapy thus strengthening the PT/PTA team.

If you or someone in your program or organization can provide informed input to this critical dialog, we urge participation. Detailed information on participant expectations and qualifications for this multiphase Summit can be found at our Summit website. Broad and diverse representation will lead to Summit outcomes that can influence PTA scope of work and, potentially, the elements of physical therapist practice that PTAs support.

Please consider participation after visiting the Summit website - as well as forwarding this information to your colleagues whose experience and viewpoints can inform and influence these efforts.  Thank you in advance for your consideration and any assistance you can provide.
